Manchester United want to rap with Chelsea about a £60m deal for midfielder Will.I.an, 29.
Jose Mourinho is a tough taskmaster. Sergej Milikinovic-Savic, 23, must be “willing to die” for Manchester United according to Patrice Evra. At Lazio, they only make him run around for 90 minutes.
Also leaving Lazio is Felipe Anderson, 25. That’s if West Ham cough the £35m the Albiceleste are demanding with Santos due 20% of the fee.
Mario Balotelli, 27, likes southern France and is keen on a move to Marseille. Whether Nice will like him so much remains to seen.
Jack Wilshere, 26, is set to leave Arsenal at the end of the month and Crystal Palace are back in for the former England international.
His place in the Gunners squad could be taken by Steven N’Zonzi, 29, who is set to leave Sevilla…
…who are set to sign Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente, 23.
N’Golo Kante, 27, said, “Today I am at Chelsea, and today I am currently living and playing in the World Cup, that is what comes first.” Which is the politest way anyone has told Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain to do one.
Twenty-one-year-old James Maddison, 21, is set to undergo a medical at Leicester City after the Foxes agreed a fee of £24m with Norwich City for the midfielder.
Roma president James Pallotta was joking when he said that Real Madrid were close to signing Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker, 25. Liverpool and now Chelsea head the queue of other clubs begging to be snubbed.
